A*STAR scientists uncover potential drug target to nip cancer in the bud.

Scientists at A*STAR have discovered an enzyme, Wip1 phosphatase, as a potential target to weed out the progression of cancer. Although studies in the past have revealed that this enzyme plays a critical role in regulating the budding of tumours, scientists have for the first time unearthed a mechanism for its mode of action. The research was conducted by Dr Dmitry Bulavin and his team at A*STAR
